Cyber Safe – Are you and your family cyber safe?

Sunday, January 30th, 2022 @ 1pm mountain time

The internet and social media has become an amazing tool for connecting and educating, but with limited regulation, there is potential for privacy issues, bullying and criminal activity. Everyone is welcome to join the Calgary Buddhist Temple – Sangha Engagement for this 90 minute workshop, Cyber Safe, which will be composed of a presentation by Michael Kim of the Youthlink Calgary Police Interpretive Centre and will provide tools to keep your family safe online.  You may even learn how to better protect yourself when connecting to public networks or sharing personal information on the internet!

Presentation Highlights

  • Social media can be a great place to connect with friends and family from all over the world. While these platforms can be used for positive relationships, bullying, online predators, and FOMO (fear of missing out) can all have an affect on young people’s mental health.
  • Did you know public WIFI networks can be an online hacker’s paradise? We share tips and tricks for keeping you and your family safe while browsing the internet or using a smart device.
  • We have insider intel from the Calgary Police Service Cyber Crimes Unit. We share top cases from the unit and how to prevent yourself from becoming a victim.

For adults and youth 12 years and older. Designed for parents/guardians as well as youth mentors/supporters. This Youthlink presentation is proudly sponsored by the Calgary Police Youth Foundation who support educational opportunities to keep our kids and community safe.
